Rebalance Sports Medicine offers office ergonomics services to the downtown Toronto core. Ergonomics is concerned with the suitability of the work environment to the individual worker and aims to enhance performance, promote wellness and prevent any deterioration in the workers health. Ergonomic assessments evaluate the individual worker and the workstation in order to help us identify any risk factors that may result in less than optimal health or injury. Our solutions are cost effective because they reduce employee injuries and improve employee productivity. We focus on prevention by implementing solutions that target risk factors. If an injury already exists, our experts will find ergonomic solutions that target the root problem in order to resolve your pain and prevent recurrences.

Our services are geared to individuals who spend hours a day working at a desk or in front of a computer. We offer a variety of ergonomic services to suit whatever your specific needs may be.

Office Ergonomic Follow Up
Once your new equipment arrives, our ergonomist will return to your office and help you optimize the set up of your new products. One of the most important aspects of ergonomically sound office design is the positioning of your equipment and furniture to suit the space, your body and your specific tasks. Poor positioning of ergonomically designed products is one of the most common errors that our ergonomists encounter in the workstations that they assess. For example, you may own the most ergonomically sound keyboard but if it is not placed appropriately, it can still lead to strain and injury. Scheduling a follow-up session with our ergonomist is highly recommended as they will help to position your new products for you and will re-assess your work space to ensure that you have the most optimal workstation set up. This will also give you an opportunity to explain to the ergonomist how your body feels with the new changes that have been implemented and address any issues or concerns that may arise.
Office Ergonomic Lunch and Learn for staff
We also offer seminars for your employees in order to introduce them to important ergonomic concepts that are applicable in an office environment. Key topics include:
- Neutral and Optimal Posture
- Risk Factors for office injuries
